This is a really really good book. Petie McCarty writes with great insight into the thoughts of Mac/Sean and Cory. The story opens with Cory at her lake resort Slowly we are offered glimpses of their past relationship and the reasons for their lack of trust. I loved Mac to bits. A hard upbringing forges him into the man he is. Cory lost her family, everyone leaves.... I don't want to give anything away so I must simply say, read it.... OMG, Petie... That ending.. Totally unexpected. Loved it... ...more

Unfortunately, what he wants and what he gets may be two different things, especially since he has to deal with not only his superior officer’s expectations but also his own feelings of guilt, and the lack of cooperation from the woman he is determined to protect—from hims

This is a well written, multi-layered, and a highly entertaining romantic suspense. The characters are believable and have depth to them bringing them to life on the pages of the book.

I was really intrigued by the idea of an angel being in the story. Evidently they are working behind the scenes or in secret to be unveiled at the end of the book. I like mysteries also, so this aspect was not unlike figuring out a whodunit. The book started out with telling us a great deal about action that happened in the past. I kind of felt like I would have liked to have gotten to know the brother and his team instead of hearing about it. But then that would have been an action adventure no ...more

Great story!!!
4.5 Stars
The entire book revolves around Cory Rigatero and Navy SEAL Lieutenant Sean "Mac" McKay. There are three story lines running through this book. The first is after six years and breaking Corey's heart, Mac has come back to town. The second is the threat of treason hanging above Corey's deceased brother's name. And finally, someone wants Cory to sell her resort and is willing to go to extreme lengths to make it happen. If you weave these three threads together it makes for a

I really enjoyed this new-to-me author. Ms. McCarty does an admirable job of portraying her characters, but I think her real strength comes from her description of settings. It was easy to visualize the lodge that Cory was working so hard to save and the very real threat of masked assailants entering her house after dark.
While I like Mac, I thought that some of his actions didn’t properly portray his occupation as a SEAL and the romance sometimes felt forced instead of natural.
Overall, a good re

Oh, I do love a man in uniform, even if it’s on paper. Mac turns up to protect his best friend’s sister, or does he. Problems start as soon as he arrives, and things just get worse and worse. Is he the good guy she thinks or is he there to destroy her life?

Not telling the answers because it would spoil the magic, and this book is magic.

I give this book 5 out of 5 clouds.

The Angel and the SEAL

A suspenseful romance that swept me off my feet. I loved the tension between the characters and the mystery and suspense throughout the story it left me guessing throughout. I enjoyed the characters and loved watching the push and pull of their relationship.

First off, let me get this out of the way: I received a copy of this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for my honest review.
Secondly, I love suspenseful romance books and this one did not disappoint me. I'm knew to this whole "free book for a review" thing (basically thinking that these books may not be that great, but their free so i'll give it a shot). Then I got a little concerned because I don't do the paranormal thing either, but this book didn't have much of it in it at all. I am so ha

I hesitated in the beginning unsure of whether or not I really could get into this book. I soon learned that my hesitation was the wrong approach. I fell into The Seal's Angel and it's beautifully written scenery. Ms. McCarty has a obvious flair for painting scenes that definitely makes you feel as though you are right there. I was in complete awe. This book was a very interesting read. There was just enough of everything i.e. mystery, suspense, romance, laughter, and sadness. I was quickly pul ...more

Lots of Suspense

The Seals Angel was not what I expected. But a pleasant surprise none the less, as is it mostly suspense/mystery. Weaved into it was a bit of romance with very little heat. The characters were very likeable, the writing was steady, and the plot believable, but errors occurred most towards the end. Despite that, it was a nice story. My only complaint was that both the Mac and Cory were back and forth on yearning for each other and deciding whether they were good enough for each ot

It was a nice charming tale with very likeable characters and a very unexpected guardian angel. You like Cory Rigatero when you meet her and you also like Navy Seal Sean Mackay who’s kind of on an unexpected and secret mission. Cory receives an unexpected package from her brother and Sean comes not to long after that. You like the characters from the start and it flowed quite nicely even if it’s short. So if

I really enjoyed this book. The story line is very good with a lot of really likable characters. This is a story that shows that no matter who you are or what your circumstances is, God is always there for you and His time is not necessarily your time. A really really enjoyable read.
